I have rheumatiod arthritis that has been diagnosed. The treatments and specialist are more than I can afford. I also have other health issues that I can not afford to have treated. I am wondering how many other people are in the same boat and if there are any who have been in this position. How did your circumstances change?

I have three molars that are so bad, it affects what I can eat and how I eat it, but I don't have insurance. I make do though, and apply temporary fillings here and there, and that kind of thing. I'm hoping we get insurance soon though!

Be careful! I had serious infections from bad teeth and it started to cause heart damage and sepsis poisoning! I couldn't afford dental either and ended up in the hospital with no choice. Good luck and I hope you get insurance soon!!!!!!!!!

I wash my mouth out with apple cider vinegar, which is a natural anti-batcterial and anti-viral. I watch it very closely too, just to make sure.

I have back problems (instead of being straight, my spine sortof curves from side to side), which also causes TMJ and migraines because everything is thrown out of alignment by my curved spine. I've been told that I need physical therapy, and been advised to see a chiropractor several times, but the money's just not available.

I now have dental (have yet to use it) but before I had it, I had GE Wellness Signature Plan. It's a reduced-fee plan. There's a dental-only plan, which is what I had. But there is also a health one.

I have Bipolar I and severe migraines. I have good insurance, but it will be gone come the end of this month. My company switched to a high deductible plan and most of my specialists (that it took me about ten years to find) will be out of network. So I will be royally screwed next year. My migraine doctor will be in network, but my more often seen Bipolar doctors will not be. I go to one doctor every other week and the other once every three months for my medication. Oh, and the medications for both conditions are crazy expensive. Three of my meds are over $100 per refill. One of them is a monthly medication. I take over ten medications, so three of many cost over $100.

I've complained to HR that their new policy has screwed me over. I told them the new plan is no good for anyone with a pre-existing condition that needs to see a doctor regularly. They said they would "see what they could do." I haven't really heard back. I'm so shocked. Ha.

I'm not in that position (and I'm really sorry, and I do feel for you), but have you tried taking a vitamin like glucosamine sulphate for the arthritis pain? And I specifically mean sulphate and not chloride or something else.
